Docker container servercore:ltsc2019 crashes running with no internet access RRS feed

  • Question

  • docker run -it cmd.exe 

    I'm running this on a windows server that has no internet access (artifactory repo goes to The images downloads and runs then exits after 2-3 seconds. I notice that there is a failure logged in the eventlog 

    hcsshim::Process::CloseStdin - End Operation - Error [pid=6820 cid=393227f05528dfa949a6fe990e9ad7e4ee6a93475de2a6071ab9144c5cfd01c7 error=hcsshim::Process::CloseStdin 393227f05528dfa949a6fe990e9ad7e4ee6a93475de2a6071ab9144c5cfd01c7:6820: hcsshim: the handle has already been closed]

    I also notice there's at attempt to access (a microsoft IP) after the container starts. Can you help me figure out how to fix this? What is the container attempting to download?

    If I run this on a windows server with internet access it works fine.
